SENATE BILL NO. 629
AN ACT MAKING A SUPPLEMENTARY ARPROPRIATION TO THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF REIMBURSING MR. AND MRS. ROBERT J. STARR FOR PUPIL TRANSPORTATION COST.
WHEREAS, Eileen Starr, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Starr of Newark, Delaware was enrolled at St. Marks High School during academic year 1976-77 and thus entitled to pupil transportation cost; and
WHEREAS, inadvertently Eileen was left off the mailing list of eligible students for transportation reimbursement; and
WHEREAS, when the error was discovered it was too late to reimburse Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Starr due to the expiration of the fiscal year; and
WHEREAS, under Delaware law no state agency can pay a bill which was incurred in a prior fiscal year; and
WHEREAS, Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Starr are entitled to be reimbursed like other parents.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:
Section 1. The sum of $114.00 is hereby appropriated to the State Board of Education for the purpose of reimbursing Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Starr for pupil transportation cost incurred during fiscal year 1976-77.
Section 2. This is a supplemental appropriation and the funds hereby appropriated shall be paid by the State Treasurer out of funds in the General Fund of the State of Delaware not otherwise appropriated.
Section 3. The funds herein appropriated unexpended on June 30, 1978 shall revert to the General Fund of the State of Delaware.
Approved June 29, 1978.
